MILFORD - Monday marks six months since Hurricane Sandy slammed into southwestern Connecticut.

Residents in Milford are still struggling. Some homes are sitting badly damaged and waiting to be torn down.

There were also people out Monday working on repairing homes in the area. Many homes are being built with elevated first floors to protect them from future storms.

Residents say they are concerned that another storm will hit and they want to be ready for it. Despite the continuing cleanup efforts, people say life is starting to return to normal in the area.
